” Area commanders and divisional police officers had adequately been briefed on various security measures to be adopted to ensure  smooth implementation of electoral process in their respective places of supervision.

“We have mobilised sufficient armed personnel to provide security before, during and after the election,” the police commissioner said.

” I am giving 100 per cent assurance to all law-abiding residents of state, that they can go about freely to exercise their franchise on Feb. 25  without threat to lives and property,” he added.

Dauda  explained that the security measures put in place would enable eligible voters to participate in all electoral processes without threat to lives and property.

He said that anyone or group of people found wanting would be arrested and prosecuted.

” We will   provide a level-playing ground for all political parties to operate optimally  as the programme of transition is being  implemented.

“We will not tolerate any act capable of bringing confusion before, during and after the election; any person or groups found disobeying orders would be arrested and prosecuted.”
